Will this show vnic's (on Solaris 11 express)?

Hi,

Some idea: cant you guys sit down and combine nicstat, nx into a single tool
which can be submitted to the Solaris OE that users can actually benefit from ?
Tim Cook, Brendan Gregg all started nicstat. http://blogs.sun.com/timc/entry/nicstat_the_solaris_and_linux

Having dozens of pieces and no single tool inside Solaris do monitor NICs sucks.

Think about.
thanks.

I have not tested against VNICS but I will add that to my todo list. I know of no reason why VNICS will not work. If you get a chance to run it against a VNIC please do not hesitate to send me feedback (and a kstat -p ). I will make it work.(rick.weisner@oracle.com)

As for a nx, nicstat merge, only time will tell. I will discuss it with my management. It does take quite a bit of time and effort to get a new tool put into the OS.

thx. it would make sense to find nicstat or nx or combined inside
Solaris. I know it takes time, but I hope this could be considered.

cheers
